If the underdog Raptors are to triumph over the final 3 games of the best-of-seven, underdog (Brooklyn has 20 to 1 odds on the same NBA betting futures) – they’ll need swingman DeMar DeRozan to continue increasing his game. With his team in frantic need of a superstar, DeRozan has stepped up averaging 24.5 points per game through the first four.
Brooklyn’s fate lies in the hands of vets like Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, a couple of long-time Celtics with winning experience. The key cog who could drive the Nets to their lofty targets, nonetheless, might just be Deron Williams.
They might not be obvious favorites to contend for a title, but don’t think that the Raptors and Nets aren’t still among the most exciting NBA betting choices offered.
